Hi, I'm a bit confused how to submit my business:-

- We're an online shop/store (based in the UK) selling products to a global customer-base (e.g. USA, Australia etc.).

- The nearest option appears to be a service business, but the servicing radius is limited to 999km, which by implication excludes our global customer base. 

- I initially set us up a google plus "brand" page, but when I think about it, I don't believe this accurately reflects our business as we are essentially a retailer and not a brand.

 

Please can someone help advise how we should categorise ourselves? Also in assuming that we should be defined as a "service business", then what are the implications of the 999Km radius that is applied - e.g. will this exclude our valued worldwide customer-base?

 

Many Thanks

 

Jon

never mind 

GoogleMyBusiness isn't inted for online businesses.

And servicing customers means facing your customers in person.

 

This is defacto impossible in  a 999km area (and ofcourse as well worldwide).


We strongly recommend therefore to all SAB's to restrict their area to about 50 km 

all other radius will make the listing disappear from ranking at all.
